## How and when to use 「そうですね」？

6

I only know the 2 meanings of it as follow:

1. Use when thinking - no meaning
2. Use to agree with others - the meaning is like "yes, I think so"

What else and what situation can it be used?

If someone ask me "これはあなたの財布ですか？”, Can I answer 「そうですね」? Is it strange?　or Is it better to answer without 「ね」?

1It is better without ね. With ね, it does not sound like an answer about your own thing. But I wonder why. – Tsuyoshi Ito – 2011-11-07T15:36:29.667

3そうですね is an answer to きょうはいい天気ですね ("Today is nice, isn't it?"), and expresses agreeing with opinions/feelings of others. そうです is answer to これはあなたの財布ですか ("Is this your wallet?"). – Amadan – 2011-11-07T20:16:59.407

これはあなたの財布ですか

そうですね doesn't work.

The ね at the end gives a feeling of asking for a confirmation (As in yes, right?)

At the beginning of a sentence ね is used to get someone's attention or (if followed by an interrogation mark) to ask for confirmation.
